CMA Megacorp, game developers, have reportedly spotted a diagonal swiping bug with the iPhone 5 and iPod Touch 5G.

iPhone 5 touch screen bug? Slide finger back and forth diagonally on screen, input events drop out or stop altogether.

Recombu put the bug to the test and found touch recognition was indeed affect by high speed scrolling.

Using the two iPhone 4Ss on the most recent versions of iOS and the same split on two iPhone 5s, we testing the theory that the diagonal scrolling input drops out on the newer handsets at high speed. The problem is exacerbated by scrolling diagonally and as you can see only occurs on the iPhone 5s.

Experienced this while playing temple run. Every few minutes the phone just won't respond to my swiping gestures, and then I just die (in the game). iPhone 5, iOS 6.0.1

This is a software bug. I have an iPhone 5 and can repeat the bug in the Mail app. If it were a hardware fault it should also happen in other use situations. Try dragging the notification center down most of the way and start swiping up and down as fast as you can. It will not lock up.
